    If you find a failbr3ak on the internet then let us know so we can show up the scammers and alert the community.

    FAILBR3AK LIST (WIP!)

    • Gull1hack - the dev has come clean and shown his methods for constructing the fake GUI and videos.

    • SpartanBr3ak - they continue to assert they are legit and we continue to assert they are immoral douchebags. No link provided as they are requesting donations towards an iPhone 3GS.

    • bluest0rm - 'So we are going away for a while and discussing what to do with bluest0rm.'... uh-huh. UPDATE - THEY HAVE PULLED THEIR BLOG.

    • blu3ra1n - showed up a day after bluest0rm supposedly 'left', with an identically formatted page, claiming a new JB that can be installed from Cydia or Rock. Their proof? A generic app screen with 'jailbreak' as a toggle, and a big ol' DONATE button. The link to their site has now been removed. UPDATE- THEY HAVE PULLED THEIR BLOG.

    • ha1lst0rm - ads and donate links on their blog... and nothing else... ROFL

    • ipt-dev - one post on their blog in Oct 2009... *span*spang*spang* is it dead yet?

    • thunderst0rm - more like a limp, wet fart: one that only contains a message box.

    • br0k3n_appl3 - useful for mom's home made apple pie, & nothing else...

    • turbo2snow - a 124kb program that creates a batch file to kill iTunesHelper.exe on your computer. That's it.


    Note that, despite the rules, you may provide a link to the failbr3ak web page for checking purposes but if they are found to have ads or donate buttons we will remove the link after checking. There will be no infraction for the link poster in this case.

    Also note that we are very happy to see new 'Dev Teams' attempting to hack up the iDevices but there is a correct and proper way to publicise their work. All of the above tend towards NOT going down the correct channels.

    Feel free to vent here in support of or against any of the above tools. It's good to thrash it out and may even lead to one or more of the failbreakers being removed from the list if they can show themselves to be moving in the right direction in terms of their work and publicity.

    Everyone -

    They have been gone for awhile, but just in case they re-appear, the "team" named

    ipt-dev (As in, iPod touch dev) is FAKE. They did nothing except beg for donations for an iPod touch MC model. Don't fall for it.
